This year we are running things differently in regards to volunteering, we will be looking for volunteers to sign up i order to come, we are trying to be organized , also having people scheduled will help us put to use the volunteers we have, and less people standing around. If you have been to any of our events they are always crowded with lots of potential adopters and we are trying to make the events safer with less people standing around, not blocking the aisles or doors also. If you can volunteer at any of these times please email email@example.com
Good or bad 2013 has come to an end, we now must move on to a new year. We pray every year that we will not need foster homes, or donations, or adopters for the countless homeless and abused animals, but this year like every year past we know that we and you are all still needed, bitter sweet. We welcome 2014 in, this year will have more memories good or bad, more opportunities and choices, and we will continue to be the voice for the voiceless. We can not do that alone and need your help for the future of Wags dogs. While 2013 is behind us we want to make sure everyone knows how grateful we are for all the miracles that you have allowed us to help. We have asked countless times for people to step up to help a dog, or raise money, or both and you all have helped in making it possible. Please remember to like our Facebook page where you can keep up with all of our dogs coming, needing foster and forever homes and for emergencies. If you can not help you can always share.
We are grateful for the animals we were able to help and look forward to being able to help more in 2014.
I always get little reminders here and there to remind me why I am involved in rescue, I see these reminders in the people that help us get a dog that was beaten so severely that her tongue had a hole in it. The people that stood up or donated or shared to help us bring Giselle who was nearly starved to death, skin and bones. It is one thing to see a pic and another thing to actually see her and touch her in person, I could take a class about the bones in a dog because she was so emaciated that i could see every bone in her body, and through that she was very sweet. My kids remind me to when i see them get upset at the sad ASPCA commercials and they come to me crying, as sad as it is to see my kids cry it gives me the opportunity to remind them of the happy side of rescue, we talk about the dogs and cats we have adopted, and the foster we have at the time, and my biggest reward is to hear my kids tell me that they are going to foster when they get older and get a place of their own. It is the little reminders in life that keep me going.
